Overview

London Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Interior designed 2 double bedroom raised ground floor flat. Close to tubes.

This is a very bright and airy 2 bedroom flat. On the raised ground floor of an imposing terraced house, the flat has high ceilings and large windows. It offers 2 double bedrooms (one with queen sized bed and the other a small double) and a modern shower room. It has an extremely well equipped open plan kitchen/living room, which has an everyday use comfortable sofa bed for an extra short term guest. It is beautifully presented and very well located. Clean and quiet. I think It is really suitable for 2 to 4 people, as both the beds and the sofa bed are doubles, NOT twins, so the beds do need to be shared.(there is no charge if the 4th person prefers to use the sofa bed). The flat is a wonderful comfortable modern apartment for this number, but at 4+, it is a bit tight for space, so I would say only suitable for very short stays for larger groups.

It is conveniently situated within easy walking distance of various tube lines,(Piccadilly, metropolitan, circle, hammersmith and city) and is within striking distance of the M4 and Heathrow airport. On my personal site www.stayatthegrove.com you will find links to a cab company which does airport pick up and drop off (£36 for collection, £26 for drop off), and for those driving, a link to car parking.

There is a lovely village feel to the avenue,sitting in the Brackenbury Village area of London, with a small selection of quality restaurants a short walk down the road, as well as a Deli, and local convenience stores for groceries. The Grove Bar and Restaurant offers a 15% discount off its A La Carte menu to guests of the apartment.(vouchers in the Welcome Folder.)

The Hammersmith Apollo, the Westfield shopping center and the Shepherds Bush Empire are all close by, as well as The Vue cinema.

There is a £50 surcharge for use of the sofa bed for parties of more than 4 people.

If the apartment is empty we are happy to negotiate discounts for last minute bookings, and discounts for one couple.

There is also a £60 end of stay cleaning charge, to be included in balance of payment.

£200 damages deposit payable which can be a Euro or Sterling cheque.

I am able to accept payment by card or bank transfer.

We ask 25% of total rental fee to secure dates, with the balance payable 4 weeks before arrival.

About Darian Day

I am mother to two grown up daughters. I grew up in London, but have lived in the Berkshire Downs for the last 20 years or so, bringing up family. I two beautiful rental houses in the South of France and a flat in Portugal....I am building up a little site of privately owned special places to stay throughout Europe. Visit my site, shortstaysat,com

Darian Day purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Darian Day chose London

Having seen my girls through school and on their way into the big wide world, I decided I would really like a little bolt hole in London. I have lived in Chelsea, Chiswick, and Holland Park at different stages of my life, but have unreservably absolutely fallen in love with Hammersmith Grove. It is SO accessible, close to multiple transport links, the bedrooms so peaceful,yet it is so central and I have made friends with local restaurants etc in no time because of the village like atmosphere. Not being able to afford the luxury of a flat just for us, I decided to let it out on a short term basis, so my family and I get to stay in it ourselves when it is empty, but in the meantime the rentals mean it pays for itself !

What makes this apartment unique

The huge windows let in so much light, the flat is bright and airy. It is not a 'home', it is a sexy little London 'pad'.....it always feels like being on holiday in the City, an escape, a treat!

A gorgeous cosy flat in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Darian from the very first contact. We loved our stay in Hammersmith Grove and would definitely rebook this flat. Although cosy for 5 of us (3 small children) it was just what we needed and a very short walk to supermarkets, deli, pubs, and Bus & Tube stations. It was a great start to our year long adventure in France! Thank you Darian!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Suited our families (2 adults, one child) needs perfectly! What you see in the pictures is spot on.

The location is near just about everything you need: giant Tesco, restaurants, convenience stores and pubs. The close proximity to tube stations and bus stops really make this an outstanding base for a sightseeing trip to London.

The flat is comfy and well stocked. Both beds offer a great nights sleep. Plenty of closet and drawer space to really unpack and feel like you're at home. Not once did we find ourselves saying, "I wish this place had a..."

Darian made the whole rental experience very easy! Great communication and a well thought out folder of info.

All the above make it an easy recommendation to others.

Great London Base

We had a wonderful stay at Hammersmith Grove. Comfortable, clean and well maintained. We were very well located for getting out and about in the city both on foot and by tube. We would recommend this property to a friend.
